Beautiful day to hike! lots of butterfly, wildflowers blooming, mountain laural looking spectacular. Hiking along the river is just sublime. A great way to get away from the humidity as well as the hustle & bustle of everyday living. This is my happy place! Great trail!

nice flat trails for the most part, very lush vegetation. unfortunately, we didn't get to see the elk. bummer.

we did see tons of wild turkeys. creeks are beautiful, a bit buggy in the bottoms.

crazy ride to get there on hairpin turns on steep gravel roads, but, very worth it.

Family hike to Davison Gap
In and out about 8miles. Plenty of stream crossings but a good and moderately strenuous trail for the early season legs.continuing down the gap would have gotten us to a few cabins for viewing, but stopped here rather than continuing.

I have mixed feelings about this trail. It is a matter of which way you hike. Leaving from CATALOOCHEE it is harder. If you are only hiking it to see the buildings you are better off hiking from other end. Buildings are well maintained and worth the time to explore.

Great wildlife viewing all while walking in human history! Start at Old 284 road.

I did not like this trail mainly because of so many loose rocks.
